Germany is one of Europe's largest countries, both in terms of size and population, but also in terms of the amount of colocation data centers. Together with United Kingdom, The Netherlands and France, Germany is among the four leading co-location markets. Despite Berlin being the capital of the country, the largest population of data centers is around the city Frankfurt am Main, which is where the majority of the traffic in Germany is routed through (as well as traffic from a lot of other countries, as it is one of Europe's nerve centers in terms of bandwidth exchange). Most traffic is exchanged at Germany's leading internet exchange point, the DE-CIX, but several other internet exchange points exists as well.
Germany is 357.021 square kilometers large and has a total population of about 82,5 million people.
